IT Cosmetics LE Naturally Pretty Celebration Palette Review and Swatches

I got this palette for an amaaazing deal, thanks to the blog Nouveau Cheap. It came out as a limited edition palette for the holidays, so that’s probably why, but who can pass up a $42 palette for half off? Not I. (If you’re interested in buying this palette, it’s back in stock and the coupon code still works!)

As far as matte eyeshadows go, these are good! I don’t think they are as good as the Tarte Amazonian Clay Tartelette palette, but they’re definitely better than a lot of matte eyeshadows on the market. The point of the “transforming ombre radiance ribbon” is that you can add it to any of these shadows to make them shimmery. Honestly, I’m not that impressed with this part. Maybe I just need to use it more, but it doesn’t seem very pigmented when it’s on my eyelids.

I used this palette today for the first time and I’m pretty impressed. The shadows are easy to blend and I didn’t notice any fallout when dipping my brush into the shadows OR on my face. I think that’s hard to do, especially when talking about mattes.

First row of shadows. Excuse the lighting here…Not quite sure what happened!

Second row of shadows, including three swatches of the transforming ribbon (champagne, gold, and swirled together).

The packaging is so beautiful! It’s cardboard, but it’s holographic, which makes it look very high-end (in my humble opinion). It has a nice sized mirror on the inside and a magnetic closure.

Overall, I think this palette is worth your money. It’s very high quality and has a beautiful shade range. I don’t own the original Naturally Pretty palette, so I can’t compare the two, but if you’re into versatile matte palettes, this is a great option!

    I actually have a blog post comparing this (swatches and all) to the Tartelette. I agree that it isn’t bad for an all matte palette, esp for a clearance price… but I never use mine and actually regret buying mine just for the simple fact that the pigment is lacking and I don’t typically have a lot of time to build up my shadow :-/ I’ve heard that the original was much better! Have you tried it!?

      I agree that the pigmentation is a bit disappointing. Some of the shades didn’t even show up on my skin unless I dipped my finger in like three times.
      I haven’t tried the original! I’ve heard that it’s amazing, and the colors are beautiful. I’m waiting for a good deal on that one too 😉
